This is a database engine with scanned images of archival information about and from Claymills and the Burton on Trent area. The site has its own dedicated search engine which just requires key words to search. It provides access to all the pictures and documents that have been scanned so far (4,600 at the last count). As this is a long term project it was decided to publish work done so far. This facility has been rewritten during 2020. (comments please).
See what is happening in our current restoration work and major projects.
